1/9/2024 - Toyama Update – Event team in Toyama has reported only very minor damage in Toyama after the earthquake in Japan. No plans have changed for the congress in Toyama, Japan.

The 2024 Congress will have three special tracks:  Supervision, Founders, and an Educators Track.

The Congress will also focus on interactional methodologies for working with families and how those changes impact the families with which therapists work.  The 2024 Congress, like all IFTA Congresses, will also feature many approaches to a variety of problems and ways of coping with them. The congress aims to help heal hurting couples and families in various cultures.

The International Family Therapy Association was an outgrowth of the East-West Bridging Congress conducted in Prague in 1987. Since that time, IFTA’s goal has been the same: Advancing family therapy worldwide by promoting research, education, and sound practice while promoting international cooperation and the exchange of knowledge and ideas that support the health and well-being of families and persons around the world.
